I just got this book. It claims to prescribe a diet plan that can remove fat while still gaining muscle. Good concept. :) Has anyone had luck using this type of plan before?

IS that the company that makes that MHP stuff?

I have this book, you should have PM'd me.. I would have shipped it to you..

IMO, its worthless. Diets shouldn't be based on percentages and by saying that you need a 45/35/15 split at every meal is absurd. I tried it for 6 weeks and it failed..

I, personally, cannot have that many carbs without gaining weight or, in a deficit, losing muscle.. but that's just me.

thanks for the advice. Also I didn't buy it, my roommate already had it. It did seem counter-intuitive to eat that many carbs. I'm trying to lose fat while still gain strength and muscle, which seems like fairy tale or something :p

So I'm not sure what to try

If you're looking for a recomp diet you can check out the tnt diet. I've been following it for a few months now. Simply to follow and pretty effective so far.
